CME Clearing and CME Clearing Europe currently offer clearing of privately-negotiated deals, submitted via CME ClearPort, in several types of forwards, including contracts on metals, delivered gas, wet freight rates, and FX. In the future, we expect to begin offering clearing for other types of forwards. Exactly as with futures, forwards may be cash-settled or physically-delivered.
This section outlines the basics of processing for forwards – what they are, how they work, how they differ from futures, and more.
